In our eyes, one of the best looking Seiko 5 models ever made – with a very distinctive bezel. Model reference 7019-7410
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The serial number on the case back tells us that this watch was made in either 1969 or 1979, but is not definitive as the movement was in production in both of these years. However, this is the 7019A movement and at some point this was redesignated 7019B, so our watch must be from the launch year of 1969. That also better suits the styling and technology – by 1979 most Seiko watches were quartz.
This Seiko 5 has a lot going for it. Let’s start with the dial – a wonderful blue with a spun pattern to bounce the light off, but what makes it different is the lack of any hour markers. The hour markers are actually cut into the cushion shaped bezel, which has the effect of making the watch wear bigger than it is too. While everything on the watch head is original, the bracelet is not a Seiko item, but suits the design well. The 7019A movement is automatic wind only, so with no need to wind the crown it is set into the case. You can quick set both day and date, and the day wheel is in English and Roman Numerals – watch the video to see how to advance this function. It is all working well.
